Dexter is a very gentle middle-aged Boxer mix who, sadly, was turned in to the shelter by his owner. Dexter is 6 years old, very sweet, very gentle and well-mannered, and is just a lovable, laid-back sweet soul. Dexter is good with other dogs, cats, and children...just a good all-around dog! Since he was turned in by his owner, there is no stray hold on this sweet big boy. Dexter does have allergies and needs to be medicated every other day, but he is very well worth the effort. For further information on this dog, you may contact the Athens Limestone Animal Shelter at 256-771-7889. To fill out an adoption application, go to Our Website

Our Adoption Process...

The fee for adopting a dog is $110.00, no matter the age or gender of the pet. This fee covers the cost of the animal to be spayed/neutered & vaccines: DA2PP, Bordatella, and Rabies. The adoption fee also covers a fecal exam for worms and a heart worm test!

The fee for cats is $110.00 covers spay/neuter, and age appropriate vaccines.

It is very important that you understand that you CANNOT take pets from the shelter and breed them. Most of the animals came in as strays, therefore, we do not have any background or genetic information on them. Breeding these pets would not be in their best interest nor yours. Also, a Law was just passed in Alabama which requires that EVERY animal, adopted from a shelter, MUST be spayed or neutered!!
